Erase The Years With Amazing Dysport® Injections!
Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) injections are used in the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles between the eyebrows (frown lines), crow’s feet, and forehead expression lines. When this material is injected into the muscle, it causes temporary paralysis of the muscle. Dysport® can also be used to lessen the appearance of fine lines around the mouth (smoker’s lines) and to elevate the eyebrows.
Dysport® is the brand name for abobotulinumtoxinA, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum.
Injection of this material into a muscle causes weakness or paralysis of that muscle. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. The results generally appear several days after injection and usually lasts 3-4 months, but, can last shorter or longer.

It is important that you not participate in any aerobic or physical activities after you receive Dysport® injections as any increase of blood flow to the face may alter the affects of the Dysport®.
DO NOT apply ice to the face after Dysport® injections.
Some patients experience a small amount of swelling at the injection sites following Dysport® treatment that resolves over a few days.
The amount of bruising varies from none to a small amount and it depends mainly on the individual patient. The length of time it takes for any bruising to disappear is basically the same as the time it takes for bruises to resolve elsewhere on your body. Be sure to tell Dr. Myers if you have a history of bruising easily or bleeding excessively.
It is important to remain upright for at least four hours after Dysport® injections. This prevents migration of the Dysport®. The areas treated should NOT be massaged, but you SHOULD use the muscles treated for three to four hours after injection to encourage the nerve-endings of the muscles to take up the Dysport®.
DO NOT take a nap or go to sleep immediately after Dysport® injections.
Cosmetics may be applied after Dysport® injections.
You may take a warm shower or bath after Dysport® injections. DO NOT take a hot shower or bath as an increase in blood flow to the face may alter the affects of the Dysport®. It is also recommended that you avoid sitting in a hot tub or steam shower during the evening after your Dysport® injections.
